PN MEPs - Malta's traitors

The Labour Party's favourite criticism of the current Maltese MEPs is that they are traitors, they betray us by giving Malta a bad name through their actions in the EU. Their actions against the attrition of the Rule of Law in Malta. Their actions against corruption and wrong-doing in Malta.


Malta is a member of the EU, and the upkeep of the Rule of Law is a fundamental of the EU. EU law states that:


"The Union is founded on the universal values of human dignity, freedom, equality and solidarity, and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It is based on the principles of democracy and the rule of law, which are common to the Member States."

The Maltese government should have no problem with this. I say the Maltese government, not Malta or the Maltese because:


"A country's government is not its people, and any criticism directed at it is not meant for the entire country"

Radu Dumitrescu writing for The New Federalist


It beggars belief that a government should have a problem with the Rule of Law. Yet the Labour Party accuses those who believe in and strive for its upkeep in their country of being traitors. People who fight for the upkeep of the Rule of Law in their country are patriots, not traitors.


Of course, the smear campaigns against the current MEPs are a given. Character assassination is a favourite tactic of the Labour Party. David Casa has been accused of being a cocaine addict, besides misusing EU funds. These stories later turned out to be trumped up by Labour propagandist Saviour Balzan, founder and owner of The Malta Today. Roberta Metsola was accused of endorsing the murder of thousands of Palestinians in the Israeli genocide when the European Parliament was the first European institution to condemn it.


The PN contestants for the MEP election who will get elected in the upcoming EP elections can expect nothing less than more of the same. The Labour Party activists will of course believe the spin without question. Yet they must not give in to these attacks.


The Rule of Law is everything. The Rule of Law means that everyone is judged by the same yardstick by the law, without fear or favour. The Rule of Law means democracy, justice, law and order, and human rights. It is indeed worth fighting for and fighting for it is patriotism.
